How to Use "NOW the Path Forward"

The philosophical premise is that we are not going to wait for someone else to do it for us.  We are doing it ourselves ... now.

NOW the Path Forward is an educational website using the Moodle content management system to host "courses."  The courses are actually collaborative efforts to solve real life issues by growing solutions.  The "teachers" are more like moderators, providing some instruction, but mostly guiding the group.   The "students" are collaborators.   Don't think of the courses in a traditional sense, but rather as work space.  Contribute at any level you like.   By participating as a "teacher" or "student" you agree to the Terms of Service and that all materials created on NOW the Path Forwarded are shared by the community under a Creative Commons license.
